In Limbo 2010

January 2, 2011

Hi guys! So, it’s officially 2011. Are you dreaming big, getting those gym memberships and making travel plans? Well, if so, I refuse to be the cynic who says it won’t last. Who cares if it does or doesn’t?!? The important thing is that you want to change, and you’re taking baby steps to get there. I applaud you.

Before I post my 2011 resolutions (which I am massively excited to share with you!!), I’d like to do a bit of a retrospective on this blog you’re reading right now, In Limbo. This morning I received an email with a report already tailor-made for my blog (very classy WordPress, this is why we all love you) so I’m posting it below.

And before you read it, let me say: thank you. Without all of you talented, encouraging, supportive and interested readers (most of whom are awesome writers!) I never would have gotten a “wow” score on my blog. So, a million times, thank you! Keep the suggestions and blog love coming.

I couldn’t be more excited about my geeky stats. I can’t believe I wrote 167 posts in a year! Or that one of my posts got 71 likes on WordPress.com, somehow I missed that in all the confusion. Anyhow, this is just even more motivation to make this blog bigger and better in 2011.

Again, Thank You.

xoxo,
